    A woman who knows about cars? No way!

    I am trying to be a good person so please help me. I was talking to my boyfriend about how I saw an NA mazda miata and I thought "is it a 1.6 or a 108 liter engine" but I never stare at cars because I do not want men to think I am a "dumb woman" because I like their car. There is absolutely nothing wrong with liking a car for it's looks, but (most) men tend to think that is all a woman likes is a car's looks and color. I asked him if a man was looking at your car what would he say (he has a datsun 240z, a 94 and 91 miata, and an eagle talon)? He said if a man looked at my miata i would assume he liked the car. I continued, if a woman looked at it? He said i would say she thinks it is cute. So you can see me as the woman who saw a NA madza miata who saw that he has negative camber on his driver rear wheel and not on his passenger rear wheel would say nothing to him even at a light next him because I would not be taken seriously even though he needed to fix it if it was not his intent to have the rear wheel not in line with the other. My bf then started to disagree about how men treat woman in the car world without ever having been a woman in the car world, but he just stated he would assume a woman was looking at his car differently because she was a woman. He then showed me a (made up) hotwheels car and asked "what do you think of when you see this?" so I started counting the visible "spark plug wire connections" I counted 8 so I said It has 16 clinders and he said I was only saying that to make a point not because that is what I thought (that was what I actually thought!!!). He was not even taking what I thought into consideration and said I was making a show. I said what I thought and I was still lying somehow?
    I have to deal with chronic pain, being called a redskin and sexism?

    My Article Was Published on Go Mag last night!

    I wanted to share my new piece that was published yesterday on Go Mag. I’m writing a second piece for them now. I’m proud to share this because it is the FIRST article I’ve written (that’s been published) in my freelance career that is not a personal essay. I’m branching out, though my love is always with personal stories.

    This specific piece is for Women’s History Month. To remember the prolific, influential dancer Isadora Duncan. She was the epitome of the romantic tragic artist. Her young children died in a car accident. Her husband left her after a year and committed suicide by hanging. In 1927 (at age 50) Isadora died her own unusual and untimely death. The long hand-painted scarf draped around her neck became entangled with the rear axel and open-spoked wheels of the car she was traveling in; forcefully pulling her out and ultimately, breaking her neck. She was an amazing individual. She had no formal dance training yet she attained fame and success in Europe. Toured several countries. Opened dance schools. Etc.

    Let me know what you guys think! PS: This was my first piece for Go Mag. My second piece for them is due in 6 days. They pay very quickly, for anyone interested in writing for them. More so than any other pub I’ve worked with. I was paid via Zelle within mere hours of my story being published yesterday. Gotta love that 🙂
